    What hand grips do you like?

    I need some new hand grips for the '87 I'm working on. What do you recommend?

    I do a lot of riding on my TW and really like a foamy type grip. Helps keep hands and wrist comfortable from the vibes these little engines put out. I had Oxford heated grips for awhile but the hard rubber made my hands go numb and wrists get achy after a couple of hours. GRIPS

    I always liked those. Grip puppies work well too.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    i need some new grips also.
    Mine have become sticky, i guess from exhaust of autos or something.
    they seem to be just slowly melting and sticky to my gloves.

    If a bike is plated, it's suppose to be ridden, not hauled on a trailer.

    I like the shape of those. Do they need to install over the top of existing grips? In my case, the existing grips are in really bad shape, so would just want to install them directly on the handlebars, if possible.

    Pro grip 714 rallie grips are my favorite. I have installed them on almost every bike that i have owned. I usually put heated grip elements under them during install and am always happy that i did.

    Need to remove old grips first, not over old grips.

    Keep all your grips where they are and put Hot Hands over them. Hot hands are the best grips in the world. Nobody should use any other grips than Hot Hands. Everyone should put hot hands on their TW.

    Thanks, but no thanks. I'll only be riding this bike in warm/hot weather. It would suck if the grips were warm.
